Holy Family Shrine Nebraska (The glass Chapel)

Holy Family Shrine 



For a couple decades


I've been driving


past this architectural masterpiece


marveling at it's genious,


expressing my desire to visit it.


The time comes


when you have to 


take life by the reigns


and make a decision.


I decided to stop wishing


and make my dream a reality.


The Holy Family Shrine,


or "the glass chapel (my personal name for it)


lived up to my expectations


and exceeded it in some ways.



All the beautiful flowers were a extra bonous im my opinion.  

Beautiful flowers amazing architecture ~ the perfect combination, if I do say so myself.

Miller Farm~ Pick Your Own Vegetables ~ Who can beat that ?

Miller Farms


Most of us

city dwellers

are spatially  challenged.

What ever yard space

we do happen to have

often gets covered up

with jungle gyms,

decks, pools, gazebos

and other such things.

If we do manage

to squeeze in a garden,

factors such as

poor soil,

fences and trees,

tend to

hinder growing production.



Miller farm has a wonderful solution to urban garden dilemma.

They grow the veggies and you pick them.  Simple as that.

Rocky Mountain Arsenal ~ Cattails

Rocky Mountain Arsenal


Fall weather

lends itself

to getting together

with friend

for a picnic

and hiking.

The Arsenal

has some wonderful

flatland

hikes over bridges

and around

lakes.

The combination

of hiking

and picnicing

are a

perfect match.

The kids

found some catails

to shred


and send flying in the wind.  So much fun.
